- As the world of work rapidly evolves, so does the focus on people, or the human capital, which underpins every organization. It is exciting to see the development of standards that help define good practices, but also principles of positive people management and corporate governance. This book is the first to pull these all together, providing a strong context and narrative from experienced professionals and academics who have been at the heart of these developments, to create a route map for HR professionals and business leaders, as well as policy makers and regulators.
